Nutrition Therapy for Eating Disorders & Disordered Eating
During individual counseling sessions, Sheri educates her clients about the negative effects of restrictive dieting, dispels nutrition and exercise myths and misinformation, and creates balanced eating and activity plans to restore and maintain a healthy weight and metabolism.
Through psychoeducation, she helps clients decode their "fat feelings," separate physical from emotional hungers, reconnect with their body and true Self, and understand what purpose restricting, bingeing, purging, compulsive exercise, and/or rigid food rules are serving in their lives.
Drawing from Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Sheri effectively challenges distorted thoughts about food, exercise, and body/weight and teaches skills in how to express, nurture, and tolerate emotions without abusing food, exercise, or their bodies.
Sheri believes that full recovery from eating disorders is possible with the help of a strong, compassionate treatment team. Referrals to other team members are available if needed.
